Now that summer vacation is just about here (Wednesday will be students’ last day), I can breathe again and spend some of my deserved free time on reflection. My first year as a biology teacher was one of the most difficult things I’ve ever done. But I managed to survive.
My first reflection is on the difficult journey I had just to become a teacher. Head over to my personal Going Ape blog to read: Going through hell: how I earned the title of teacher.
This is a story about how my soul was crushed over and over. My dreams were repeatedly stomped on. My hope was destroyed, restored, and destroyed again. It’s a true story.
But don’t worry, it has a happy ending.
